Macclesfield and Wilmslow Business Award Winners
Working from her waterside studio Debra Tracey not only produces delightful mosaic artwork commissions, quilled creations and jewellery, she also opens her studio
up to those wishing to learn a range of creative skills.
Debra runs regular workshops throughout the year for both adults and children.
Ideally located for Mums or Dads to sit in the cafe next door and unwind with a brew
as their child/ren learn and have fun through creative play.
Creative workshops for adults offers you time and creative space to 'just be myself' (student) and 'recharge my batteries' (student).
With a background in Adult and Family Education, Debra Tracey launched
'The Creative Space Studio' in 2007. Her vast experience of working in the community
includes work with Groundwork UK, Marks & Spencer, BUPA, Douglas Development
Partnership, East Cheshire Council and more recently, Peaks & Plains Housing with
Macclesfield Town FC, who collaborated to commision Debra to work with nearly 400
local people to produce Macc Town's stunning Mosaic Mural at the Moss Rose.
Working from her Bollington Studio, Debra enjoys sharing her expertise during her
mosaic and art courses which she runs regularly.
*New Courses Added!* Check out our mosaic jewellery making and Christmas Decoration making workshops.
Each school was given two decades to research and come up with designs.
Friday 1st June saw Debra's donated 'White Nancy' Mosaic sell for £200 with a further 3
being commissioned, £50 of which will be donated to Bollington Festival.
Many local celebrations were cancelled on Sunday due to the appalling weather but
PROMS ON THE PITCH, bravely decided to keep going at Macclesfield Town FC Moss Rose Ground.
It probably had the best turn out of any event in the area
despite the weather and Debra was busy keeping children warm and creatively busy making crowns.
Just before Easter, Debra worked with Ash Grove, Upton Priory and Hurdsfield
Community Primary Schools. Commmissioned by East Cheshire Council, Debra
worked with just under 100 children to get their ideas of which events during the last 60
years of Queen Elizabeth II's reign should be used on a visual timeline.
Debra helped the children to put their ideas to paper and although not all the designs
could be used on the mosaic, ALL the work produed by the childen were used as
bunting to hang behind the mosaic, which is currently being exhibited at
St Michael's Church in Macclesfield.
Please follow our Blog to see more pictures of the mosaic.
PLEASE NOTE - WE HAVE IMAGES FROM OUR LIFE DRAWING COURSE SO THE BLOG WILL
WARN OF ADULT CONTENT BUT WE PROMISE THERE IS NOTHING INAPPROPRIATE!

Saw the completion of the 190 square foot Macclesfield Town Community Mosaic
Mural! Here is what Dave Towns, Macclesfield Town FC Stadium Manager had to say:
"Macclesfield Town have a connection with Debra through the creation of the Tile
Mosaic Mural created at our Moss Rose Ground covering the 100 year history of
Macclesfield Town Football Club.
Together with a local housing trust the club wanted to involve the wider Macclesfield
Community in the creation of a lasting image at the ground.
Debra at The Creative Space Studio were instrumental in finding and using over 20
local organisations of all ages and abilities and as a consequence over 400 people in
creating our mural.
The mural was completed on time and on budget and is a lasting testament to Debra’s
commitment and ability to manage/interact with people at all levels.
We will be keeping a close relationship with Debra and the team."
